Total apathy really does solve all of life's problems, doesn't it?
Knockout stage of Champions League. Looking forward to the big game between Chelsea vs. Barcelona.
The game is being played in early August and its Barcelonas pre-season. Chelsea are already 6 weeks into the season and their players are match fit.
Also, the teams have made tons of transfers. So, the players who helped during qualifying rounds like Neymar arent on the team anymore. But its a knockout stage game, woo hoo!
Also, a team that finished 19th out of 22 and was only 2 point out of finishing dead last in bbt leauge qualifies for Champions League. That team didnt win the cup or anything else. They somehow qualified through some convoluted rule which applied 2 seasons ago. Thats Champions League??? Hello Rapids.
When somebody throws me a complete turd but wraps it in a shiny wrapper called Champions League, I actually take the time to analyze it and think for myself. I dont just smile, unwrap it, and eat it all down because the people running it think Im a lab rat who will eat whatever shot they serve.
This tournament is a goof to me and I call it out. Others may love it and are perfectly welcomed to.
Im not really apathetic, Im angry at the Federation for serving up this turd sandwich. Im not eating it.
But thats just me. I wont comment further because I dont want to detract from other peoples fun who might enjoy this tournament.
I just had to get that off my chest.
